Lots of Strips for the FNSI

It doesn't look like I accomplished much this FNSI, but I actually cut enough 2 1/2 inch strips to last a lifetime (or at least a couple of weeks). I'm not 100% sure what they will be used for (yeah right, you all know by now what they will turn into!).
 
One of my favorite blocks is the Jacob's Ladder. While searching for images of quilts made with them, I came across a gorgeous one from Piece O' Cake Designs. I liked everything about it, including the colors. Even though I could figure out the arrangement, I wanted to do a quilt that told me all that I needed to know. No figuring out how many squares, how much fabric etc. I couldn't find the pattern on their website so I emailed them. Within a couple of days, they emailed a free  PDF file of the quilt! Thank you Becky of Piece O' Cake Designs!! Here is the link to the quilt that someday will be draped over my favorite chair Jacob's Ladder Quilt.

Happy Stitching

I love your colour range! I know what you could make with them - I've seen a quilt called a Jelly Roll 1600 - it would make GREAT use of those!! *Sandra ducks and runs, grinning widely* :D

That's a lot of strips - I bet your back was aching when you were finished!

Thats the best thing about FNSI, you alot that time to get something started, something finished or just sit and do. Love to see the next stage of this quilt you are making. Regards Sandra

Beautiful fabric. Preparation always seems to be the longest part of quilt making.
The Jacobs Ladder is wonderful.

That will be gorgeous, Corina! That is a lot of work to cut all those strips! Great job. :o)

Prep work is a great way to spend FNSI. At first, I thought you might be making another "Jelly Roll" quilt with all those strips. But Jacob's Ladder quilts are so pretty. I'm looking forward to seeing yours when it's finished.
